This month’s cover features the photograph “The Look at Illecillewaet below Glacier House, BC.” Taken in the late 1800s, the photograph features an unidentified man sitting on a log in the foreground with a trestle bridge in the background.

The image is part of the University of British Columbia (UBC) Library Wallace B. Chung and Madeline H. Chung Collection. Donated to the UBC Library in 1999, the collection is a unique and extensive research collection of items in various formats related to early British Columbia history, immigration, and settlement. The collection was recently added to the Canadian Commission for UNESCO’s Canada Memory of the World Register. More information on the collection is available at https://chung.library.ubc.ca/.
